Probably the main reason that gamers are finding this new, infinite running game so addictive is because many can relate to the awkward real-life situation portrayed within within this app. Imagine this scenario:
There’s a beautiful red-head laying on the couch with one leg on the arm and a remote in her hand while flipping channels. Her parents come downstairs to tell her that they are going out to run a few errands and will be back in a few hours. “Don’t let any friends come over while we’re away. Okay Beth?” She keeps flipping channels and then says “okay.” Once they get in the car, she rolls her eyes and calls her boyfriend, Christian Skater over.
When Christian makes it over to Beth’s house, he asks where her parents are and she finally tells him that they are home alone and that her parents won’t be back for hours. So, they sit down on the couch to watch a movie. While they sit nervously waiting to kiss eachother, they both build up enough nerve to pucker up and go in for a kiss. Once they do, Beth’s angry dad bursts through the door with his fists balled up and rage all over his face. A taunting smile comes across Christian’s face as he jumps up off the couch, jumps out the window and takes off running down the street.
Okay now, that’s the gist. While the journey itself ensues, the overall goal of the gamer is to help their character to get as far away from the angry parent as possible. They have to be careful not to run into anything such as a road sign, a barrel or even a child playing in the street. They must also dodge oncoming traffic, giant holes in bridges and so much more. These are just a few things that help to keep the game interesting.
However, if a gamer is going to duck and dodge every obstacle that comes his way, it would make sense to give them a little help. For instance, some of the most amazing upgrades have been incorporated into this app. If a gamer earns enough coins or decides to purchase them, then they can have even more fun while playing this game. Some of those upgrades include a bolt pack that gets you gliding through the air for 15 seconds. Another one includes the nifty scooter that will help you speed through traffic and prevent any bumps along the way
Also, we can’t forget about the earn freebies. The developer of TakeOff Running has found newer more innovative ways of getting the gamers and their friends more involved. By introducing freebies to the game to do simple things such as logging into your Twitter accounts or posting your scores on Facebook so that others can see it and follow, this help to engage the gamers.
